The life ahead

For many children the first day of school is a day of joy and great expectations.

Some are more nervous than others, picking at their “Schultüte” (large cornet of cardboard filled with sweets and little presents given to children in Germany on their first day of school).

While others are simply overwhelmed with impending doom when they realise what the next 13 years of their lives will look like.

    1. It’s a trap! In German we say about the first day of school: “The seriousness of life starts now.” They only give you the candy on the first day, to sweeten the impact.
